From release:

The Plaza Midwood Merchants Association is excited to announce the second annual Holiday Central event to be held Saturday, Dec. 3rd from 5-8 p.m.

Last year, PMMA created the first Holiday Central event and invited surrounding neighborhoods to come out to visit with Santa, take part in fun family activities and to have the opportunity to buy local from the Plaza Midwood merchants. There was a tree lighting ceremony to kick off the holiday season.

Based on the great turnout from last year PMMA decided to kick it up a notch! The block of Gordon Street between Pecan and Commonwealth will be reserved for the Holiday Central event. There will be local vendors, fun family activities – such as kids face painting, ornament decorating, balloons, candy canes and more. Santa will arrive in style again in his vintage red Cadillac. Entertainment will be provided by Plaza Family Band and others. The lighting ceremony of the “art tree” will take place at 6:30.

The Plaza Midwood Merchants Association invites all to come out and enjoy this fun holiday event.
